that still works in 14.04 to get the not-yet-stable 2.2 when ppa:videolan/master-daily gives errors

I get it. I imagined that searching the Settings is easy doable because of that fix in Kupfer+Unity, I just thought something similar is involved here. I do use Synapse and is great. - So, Xfce appfinder just searches the menus, it is its intended behaviour. That is my answer.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 starting issue after official upgrade from 12.04 LTS
I am not an expert, not at all. It is not impossible that an expert will answer you, but first of all try to express very clearly what is happening. If that is not clear to you, it is even less clear to others. Your comments seem written in haste. Hardware issues may be involved. Have you booted from a live cd? Not trying to repair, just boot from the live cd or usb and use the 'test' option. What happens then?

i would create a bootable usb or cd of my preferred ubuntu flavour (in Ubuntu or in Windows) and test in a live session if booting from there i get the same results. if the same happens, then it might be a problem with the drivers. if not, i would reinstall the system from the same cd or usb

comment How to index System Setting in Kupfer?
@JJD - I am in Xubuntu and have the same problem with Kupfer in Xfce, but also the same problem with the Xfce launcher xfce4-appfinder. Is the Unity launcher able to see what initially Kupfer was not?

Why should it appear outside Unity while the user IS in Unity?

comment Synapse vs. Kupfer, which is lighter for you?
maybe because Synapse uses Zeitgeist and Kupfer does not, the later, just like xfce4-appfinder, is not able to find the sub-sections of Settings Manager in Xubuntu, like Keyboard, Updates, Appearance and many many others that Synapse can of course find.
